The good, the bad, and the ugly of Dakar 2020 in Saudi Arabia

The 42nd edition of the Dakar took competitors from the shores of the Red Sea in Jeddah, around the canyons and mountains of the western part of Saudi Arabia, over the dunes of the Empty Quarter and all the way to the Qiddiya Sports and Culture Complex near the capital Riyadh. In the end, American biker Ricky Brabec put an end to Honda’s 31-year drought and KTM’s 18-year winning streak and became the first American to win the Dakar rally.
